With Spring rebirthing our vines from their dormancy, this one day event aims to celebrate our winemaking journey by farewelling winter and welcoming bud burst. Guests are invited to our cellar door to enjoy FREE New and Current Wine releases tastings. Also available Musuem tastings, Paella Lunch and specials plus giveaways on the day.
Heathcote Wine and Food Festival is an icon on the Australian wine calendar – getting wine fans hooked on the fine produce from the Heathcote wine region well renowned for its stunning shiraz releases and now carving an exciting reputation for Mediterranean-style reds and other varietals. The Heathcote Showgrounds are transformed into a stunning family-friendly village setting and runs over the weekend.
The successful combination of top international and Australian artists, exciting programming, a beautiful setting, award-winning wines, with excellent food highlighting local produce and talent, attracts an enthusiastic and loyal audience who value the relaxed and intimate atmosphere. In the shortest time SEMF Heathcote has established itself as one of the premiere boutique festivals in Australia, and now sells out well in advance.

Ross Wilson and The Peaceniks will be performing all the hits from Daddy Cool and Mondo Rock. The day also features iconic Australian band The Badloves and opening the show is new Melbourne blues / rock outfit King Canyon featuring Jimmy Cupples. An event not to be missed!
